ECEF2LLA - convert earth-centered earth-fixed (ECEF) cartesian coordinates to latitude, longitude, and altitude.
USAGE: [lat,lon,alt] = ecef2lla(x,y,z)
lat = geodetic latitude (radians) lon = longitude (radians) alt = height above WGS84 ellipsoid (m) x = ECEF X-coordinate (m) y = ECEF Y-coordinate (m) z = ECEF Z-coordinate (m)
Notes: This function assumes the WGS84 model. Latitude...
SATGLOBE4 - This file is a higher-resolution version of "SATGLOBE," provided at the request of several users. SATGLOBE4 renders a fully manipulatable satellite view of earth at a resolution of four pixels per degree, with added...
</b>In 1975, Vincenty published a rapidly converging algorithm for computing the distance between points on an ellipsoidal earth. The algorithm is precise to within a few millimeters. Since then, his algorithm has since seen significant...
VERT2CON - convert a set of points to the set of inequality constraints which most tightly contain the points; i.e., create constraints to bound the convex hull of the given points
[A,b] = vert2con(V)
V = a set of points,...
QUADPROG2 - Convex Quadratic Programming Solver Featuring the SOLVOPT freeware optimizer
New for version 1.1: * Significant speed improvement * Geometric Preconditioning * Improved Error Checking
USAGE:
This function solves the "forward geodesic problem," which is to compute the endpoint of a geodesic (shortest-distance) path on the ellipsoidal earth, given the start point, a path length, and a starting azimuth.
In response...
Recently, Google Inc. created a few highway billboard signs asking passersby to find the first ten-digit prime within consecutive digits of e.
Certainly the Mathworks File Exchange must address such a challenge!
SHPATH - shortest path with obstacle avoidance (ver 1.3) Given a "terrain" matrix consisting of zeros (for open space) and ones (for obstacles), this function computes the shortest path between two specified points while...
